The Shade Is Real

In episode 13 of the EBPR podcast, Dez & Jasmin (mostly Jasmin) hurl shade at one another while dissecting the various types and levels of shade they’ve endured throughout their lives. From small child side-eyes, getting to Granny’s “part,” and back-handed Nigerian compliments, the EBPR ladies break it the eff down, while simultaneously seeking out blankets and sunshine to ward off the shade-induced chills. This might be one of the funniest episodes yet, but, you know, #ijs.
